First advice avoids these kinds of fake consultants. Second, if you have long term goals don’t use short term measures. Your goal should be customer satisfaction, not ISO satisfaction because ultimately it is the customer who should be satisfied with your products/services. ISO is just a mean to provide him initial assurance.
